Kong HTTP Proxy Question


I have a use case where my service is sending http2 traffic on Kong Proxy http2 connection. The LUA block is converting the message to http 1.1 and sending it to upstream peer. However, this upstream peer only allows http2 messages.

Question: Is there any way to route my message from just this service to the upstream peer. Adding custom template or plugin>? what is the best route here?

We are using Kong 0.14.1.


I’m not very sure about my answer here but I’ll post anyways to get the conversation going.

I don’t think it’s possible to send HTTP2 upstream.
Also, Nginx doesn’t and wont’ be supporting it: https://trac.nginx.org/nginx/ticket/923.
